A case has been registered against Mr. Kathirkamu who is the candidate for Periyakulam assembly in the upcoming Legislative Assembly election.
Dr. Kathirkamu belongs to Periyakulam, Theni district. It is said that about four years back he has sexually assaulted a woman after administrating her with sedatives, who came to his clinic as a patient.
Upon the complaint from the victim, a complaint has been registered by Allinagaram (Theni) police and investigations were carried out.
Earlier, Dr. Kathirkamu contested in Periyakulam constituency from AIADMK party and won to become MLA. After the demise of Jayalalithaa he went from AIADMK to Sasikala’s supported party. Subsequently he was dismissed from AIADMK and the MLA candidature was disqualified.
Now he is contesting in the upcoming assembly election from AMMK (Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam) party in Periyakulam constituency.
A woman has now come up with a complaint against Dr. Kathirkamu at Theni, All Women’s Police Station. In the complaint she has mentioned that she is 35-years old and has been sexually harassed by Dr. Kathirkamu. She was life-threatened by him if she discloses anything about the incident.
Upon the complaint by the woman, cases have been registered against Dr. Kathirkamu under 3 sections. When she was asked why she has to come up after 4 years while this incident took place in 2015, she replied that it is only after “Pollachi incident” she ensured safety to her by all means.
In between, a viral video is spreading across the social media of this incident. Investigations are on to know whether the person identified in the video is Dr. Kathirkamu or not.
While Dr. Kathirkamu spoke on this incident to the media, he said:
“The complaint against me is completely false. It is due to fear of losing in the election, Deputy CM, O. Panneerselvam and his son P. Raveendrakumar are behind this drama. I have never threatened anyone and such (sexual harassment) incident has never happened. However, I will face this false allegation against me, legally”
